My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica! This was one of our favorite places to eat! Best sushi I have ever had! Staff are very helpful!! This place is a must in playa chaquita!

Their sushi night is absolutely amazing. The unique carribean rolls and mojitos served in this lovely open air restaurant was something very special. Apparently, there are 3 different cooks who each cook on various nights of the week. What an interesting concept! We had a delicious lunch earlier in the week at Pura Gula of fresh fruit juice and handmade pizza. This place is a secret gem

The meal we had here was perfect. I had the steak. Delicious. The peppercorns melted in your mouth. It was so tasty and prepared just right. My daughter had the ravioli and she loved it. She's not a big fan of pasta either so that says a lot. Worth every penny. I think about going back to costa rica and eating here.

We were staying in Pto Uvo which lacks for eateries close by. We walked maybe a mile to go to the local market and found Pura Gula on our way back. We checked out the menu and what a delight this lunch was for us! Being on the Caribbean side, we were finding most food to have more that jerk or spicy flare. We had chicken sandwiches on bread that was so fresh and tasty and prepared with care. Only one person working/cooking at this quaint, clean patio restaurant that was brimming with beautiful cut flowers and a bowl of fresh fruit on display.
Would highly recommend if you're in the area! We would have gone back however it was a very long walk! But SO worth it! Delightful!
